Objectives
This course is a continuation of the course "Financial Analysis and Forecasting". It focuses on
long-term financial decisions.
The main objectives are to enable students to:
o
Develop investment project analysis skills;
o
Know the main investment criteria and understand their respective strengths and
weaknesses;
o
Become familiar with the concepts of capital cost and structure;
o
Understand the effects of financial leverage and their impact on earnings per share, risk
and value;
o
Understand the main principles of a company’s dividend policy;
o
Understand the standard methods used to value a company as well as the interrelations
between capital budgeting and financing decisions and how these affect the value of
shares.
Workload and Teaching Approach
Several methods will be employed to reach the above-mentioned objectives. Students will
prepare for courses by reading assigned material and analyzing cases that will serve as a basis for
in-class discussions. For cases that are handed-in, each team will prepare a document including a
text of a maximum of three pages. If necessary, this text may be accompanied by quantitative
addenda. From time to time, the instructor will make formal presentations as well as needed
summaries.
